Revival of peace process with Pak not a change in policy: Advani
New Delhi Deputy Prime Minister Lal Krishna Advani has said that the steps taken to revive the stalled peace process with Pakistan should not be interpreted as a change in India's policy. Advani reiterated that no formal talks between the two nuclear rivals could resume unless Pakistan ended "cross-border terrorism". "It (India's new diplomatic moves to better bilateral ties with Pakistan) is not a change in our policy. Our policy is the same that our talks with Pakistan will only happen when there is a suitable atmosphere. The atmosphere will be created only when Pakistan stops cross border terrorism, and when Pakistan stops infiltration," Advani said while addressing the 42nd Raising Day function of the Indo-Tibetan Border Police in national capital New Delhi.
